El Sisi’s directive to develop the AOI leads the conversation in Egypt’s state dailies

President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s directive to kick things up a notch at the Arab Organization for Industrialization is, without exception, at the top of the country’s three main state newspapers’ front pages (Al Ahram | Al Akhbar | Al Gomhuria). The AOI runs facilities that produce both military hardware and civilian goods. National security also features prominently in Al Ahram, which is running an interview with Military Production Minister Mohamed El Assar on Egypt’s first defense expo, EDEX 2018, alongside coverage of Egypt, Greece, and Cyprus’ joint military drills.
